Helen Dumore is the author also of the widely praised novel Talking to the Dead. In 1996 she was chosen as the first recipient of England's prestigious Orange Prize, awarded for the year's best novel by a woman writer. She lives in Bristol, England.From AudioFile:
Past indiscretions burden judge Simone as she balances a chaotic daily existence. With a quiet intensity, narrator Jenny Agutter discloses indulgences from Simone's youth. She asserts the panic, uncertainty and vulnerability of Simone's emotions as Michael reenters her life after twenty years. The course of the narrative is maintained as the story alternates from the past to the present and back again several times. The spoken-word resounds with the meditative qualities of the novel.
